So, I posted my gofundme on Facebook groups, and they're all over me, it's like a zombie apocalypse.
Well, posting up a "gofundme" to get your family out of a hotel and back on their feet is one thing; throwing in the rebuild my race car is something else. Usually people ask for help with necessities, not luxuries. Hope you get things back together soon.So, I posted my gofundme on Facebook groups, and they're all over me, it's like a zombie apocalypse.
It's painful but I've had to do it myself before.I have a storage unit. It can sit there until I do something with it. I'm just gonna sell it off and build my truck.
I wonder if a Magnusson supercharged 4.7 4x4 could beat a fully built ST...It's painful but I've had to do it myself before.
Sold off my '42 Ford pickup about 10 years ago because we were too strapped at the time for the parts I really wanted, and it was going nowhere... and I didn't want to compromise either. After it sat for so long, it just bothered me knowing it could be something in the right hands, so I bit the bullet and let it go.
The good news is that now I have a Jeep Overland pickup that dad and I are starting on, and I'm happy it ended this way. One thing I've definitely learned over the years is that more often than not, hindsight shows us that most things eventually turn out for the better, no matter how difficult it may have been in the moment to make that change in direction.
Hell, what I really want is a GR Yaris. I see we can’t import it, but you can’t tell me there’s no way for me to buy one and then ship it here just as dead weight, and then have it registered as a kit car or something...I had to get sell my Cobalt SS/SC which was the first car I ever built by myself. I had so much money and time in that car. My Grandmother had cancer and she was my rock, but I was stuck in Georgia while she was on the west coast. I did everything to try and transfer, but with my position being as rare in terms of openings, they simply had nothing for me. I ended up selling the ‘Balt and moving in with a friend so I could have a few months with her. Still miss that car from time to time. Don’t see them too often.
It was definitely worth it in the long run. Cars come and go, but I would never be able to recoup the time lost with her. Glad you’re all healthy and didn’t have to endure what the ST did. That **** sucks. I definitely wouldn’t have taken it very well if it were me.
